Russian gymnast Elena Zamoloditchkova showed her true strength when she tried to save herself from falling.

She performed a skill where she was supposed to do a back hip circle but failed and got stuck midways. For a few seconds, she grasped the beam fighting so hard to complete the skill.

Regardless she saved it or not, that was incredibly impressive.

As for the rest of the routine, she did a back handspring with 3/4 turn (D) to a back handspring (B) to a layout step out (C), worth 0.1 series bonus, Arabian (F), forward tuck (D) and a flic-flac with full twist swing down to cross straddle sit (D).

She ends it with a glued legged double back tuck (D). The routine took place at the all around competition of the last edition of the Goodwill Games in 2001. She was awarded the bronze medal while her teammate Svetlana Khorkina, who also fell on the beam, was awarded silver. The gold medal went to Romania's Sabina Cojocar. In the event finals, she won gold on vault and floor exercise.

Elena is best known for being a double Olympic champion (vault and floor exercise) at the 2000 Sydney Olympics. She was also part of the 2004 Russian Olympic team. 




The routine was judged according to 2017-2020 CoP
